The Vulcan Defense Force is the military arm of the Confederacy of Vulcan which are charged with the protection of Vulcan and its colonies. The Vulcan Ministry of Defense are in charge with the administration of this branch of the Vulcan state. The Minister of Defense is known to work closely with Starfleet in order to maintain peak efficiency as well as to ensure coordination between the two.

During the Earth-Romulan War, the Defense Force participated in the conflict with the Romulan Star Empire which included defending Earth's assets in the Alpha Centauri system. However, under the orders of Administrator of the Confederacy of Vulcan T'Pau, they were recalled and did not take any further overt action in the conflict with the Romulans. Unknown to many, this was partly because the Vulcans discovered that the telecapture technology of the Romulans was especially effective against Vulcan vessels allowing them to easily commandeer them remotely.

After the founding of the United Federation of Planets in 2161, the Defense Force presumably became a branch of Federation Starfleet.
